Foiled Plaid Background
Posted on December 14 2021
Hi everyone! Lynnea here!
It's safe to say that I am obsessed with plaid this Holiday season! I have an easy way to add a pop of foil and create a plaid background with an LDRS Creative stencil!
When I want to create multi toned plaid backgrounds I reach for striped stencils! I started with the Peppermint Stick Stencil and used an LDRS Creative Blender Brush to ink a white panel with Dan-D-Lion Hybrid Ink. The Peppermint Stick pattern is pretty on its own, but it's SUPER fun to rotate the stencil and then add a second layer to create a plaid! You could add the same or a different color ink, but I decided to use some Transfer Gel so that I could add some glittery gold foil to make this a festive Holiday background!
Ilina Crouse has done some AMAZING blue/teal projects with the Layered Poinsettia Die Set and I wanted to try my hand at it! I know why she loves it so much! I wasn't so sure how my colored cardstocks would piece together, but my jaw dropped to the floor! Blue poinsettias for the win! I cut two blue color combos as I wasn't sure if I wanted to go with a more teal or blue leaning poinsettia and in the end I used them both! The back of the packaging for the Layered Poinsettia Die Set has a fabulous layering guide showing all the pieces in their proper positions, so if you ever get stuck turn the package over to the back!
I adhered my die-cuts to my plaid foiled background and added a sentiment from the Potted Poinsettia Stamp Set stamped with Iced Tea Hybrid Ink to coordinate with the golden background. Thanks for joining me! I'll see you soon!
Love the video, the tips and especially the card! Beautiful Lynnea!!!
